Small Pieces Of Agate With Chisels
Agate is generally a hard rock, but it still cracks if it is struck directly or you pry on it too hard. I need to buy real chisels with hand guards. These little chisels are great for prying open small cracks, but you safely really bang on it them until they are firmly lodged.

Vein Of Agate
There is a small window of agate filling in the crack in this rock. The agate seems pretty plane - no bands or color gradients. A vein like this in the middle of a rock is probably more trouble than it is worth.

Crack Mined Out
This was a bit of tricky spot to get to - the footing was poor. I was looking for veins of agate when I probably should have been looking for agate in nodules.

Roadside Mining
There is a small deposit of pyrite in this rock face. The kids mostly broke the cubes out of the pieces already chipped off, but this mean the cubes they found were small.

We started taking photos at 3:21 pm and I took a photo every 6 seconds. I took 358 photos but I had to remove 75 photos where my low hanging shorts showed my underwear. I rendered it to 15 frames per second video because 30 fps make us look crazy. I stopped shooting at 3:56 and we left shortly after.

Nara Digging Out Fossil
The beach is mostly flat shale. In some places you will see the shale bend into a mound over an encapsulated blob. That blob is your fossil.

Vein Of Crystal In Rock
This granite is very hard. The crystals by comparison are soft and will shatter into small pieces if you strike them. Your job is to find cracks in the granite and use them to open up crystals.

Kids Finding Crystals
There is a vein of fluorite in the granite. While the kids had rock hammers, they had more luck finding crystals that other people had left behind.
